How Do Fishbone Diagrams Solve Manufacturing Problems
How do Fishbone diagrams solve manufacturing problems? Fishbone diagrams (Ishikawa diagram, Cause and Effect diagram) are successfully used in various fields of industries and manufacturing to analyze the set of possible causes and their effects.
Fishbone diagram provides a process to clearly define the “Effect” and then puts you to thinking about the possible causes, based on the categories of common problems in manufacturing. It is believed that there are 6 main branches of causes in manufacturing, in extensive version are defined 8 branches, which are described accordingly as 6 Ms and 8 Ms of manufacturing. These are:
- Management / Money Power
- Measurement / Inspection
- Machine / Equipment
- Man Power / People
- Method / Process
ConceptDraw DIAGRAM application extended with Fishbone Diagrams solution from the Management area of ConceptDraw Solution Park lets you construct Fishbone diagrams that identify many possible causes for an effect for manufacturing problem solving.
Example 1. How Do Fishbone Diagrams Solve Manufacturing Problems
6 Ms and 8 Ms are globally recognized standards for manufacturing. First you need to define an effect of the analysis and add it as a head of your diagram, all causes listed above on this page are added as the bones (without particular order). If necessary, you can also use on the diagram another terms that better suit for your company.
It is convenient to develop a Fishbone diagram representing 8 Ms or 6 Ms on the base of specialized templates, samples of Fishbone Diagrams Solution or using the predesigned objects from the Fishbone Diagrams library.
Example 2. Design Fishbone Diagrams for Manufacturing in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM
The template you see on this page was created in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM using the tools of the Fishbone Diagrams Solution. It shows the Fishbone Manufacturing 8 Ms diagram and is available from ConceptDraw STORE.
Use the Fishbone Diagrams Solution for ConceptDraw DIAGRAM Solution Park to demonstrate how do Fishbone Diagrams solve manufacturing problems.

NINE RELATED HOW TO's:
The Cause and Effect diagram introduced by Kaoru Ishikawa in 1968 is a method for analyzing process dispersion. It can help you to dive into a problem and find an effective solution, identify and represent the possible causes for an effect, analyze the complex business problems and successfully solve them.
You can design your Cause and Effect diagram on a paper, but more effective way is to use specific software - ConceptDraw DIAGRAM is a powerful Cause and Effect Diagram Software. It helps you create Cause and Effect diagram known also as Fishbone diagram or Ishikawa diagram from templates and examples.

Of course it is possible to keep network records in text documents, but it is very difficult to use them later. A more sound way to keep such documentation is to create a network diagram that might represent either logical network structure or physical. These diagrams are easy to understand and you will thank yourself later.
There is a physical network diagram. It is a tool to represent, maintain and analysis of network equipment and interconnections. Network diagram depicts the actual network information in the attractive clear graphic form. One can learn here the LAN cable length, telecommunication type and carrying capacity. The diagram depicts servers, IP address and domain name as well. Also it shows location of hubs, switches, modems, routers, and other network equipment. The sets of special symbols and images delivered with ConceptDraw Network Diagrams solution are used to show network components. Symbols have a standard view. Therefore, various specialists can read the network diagram without any discrepancies.
